Julie Bell was born in Beaumont, Texas. A former competitive bodybuilder, Julie applies the same discipline and intensity to her art career. Her knowledge of anatomy has allowed her to imbue her figures of humans and animals with grace and strength. At the heart of her artwork is a spirit of empowerment and independence. Along with earning international awards, she has been named a Living Master by the Art Renewal Center. Julie’s work has appeared on hundreds of book covers, album covers, international advertising campaigns, and numerous collectables. Her original paintings have been shown in exhibitions across the US and in Europe, and can currently be seen at Legacy Gallery in the Western USA, American Legacy Fine Arts in Pasadena, California, Simard Bilodeau Gallery in Los Angeles, and Rehs Contemporary Gallery in New York City. There are three volumes of her work available, Soft as Steel, Hard Curves, The Julie Bell Portfolio, and many books with her husband, Boris Vallejo.
